The sources mentioned below (magazines, websites, etc.)
should be checked periodically by those who are truly
interested in physics, music, or flutes.
Subscriptions to the magazines used as sources would be wise.

Much of the material from other physics sources presented on this
website was found and passed on to me by a friend who continues to be
an advisor, scientific proofreader, and proponent of the supported
theories (as opposed the conjectures) found in Behind Light's Illusion.

Marcelo Moreira Jr. has completed Portuguese Translations
of two more parts of this website.   His website is a
strong educational force in both physics and philosophy
for viewers who speak either Portuguese or English.

Added more explanation in Planck's Constant.
and at the bottom of the section in
More About the Electron called The Light Equation.

Updated February 11, 2006
Added more to Planck's Constant.
  Improved the explanations and corrected errors
both in ideas and presentation.   Planck's constant
is correct in its accepted form but must be understood as
a form of energy for one light wave.
Added new page on the website:
Planck Units and Other Units in Physics.

Updated February 9, 2006
Added more to Planck's Constant as it appears that google
as well as many websites have used the joule second numbers
with the kilogram meter2/second units for Planck's constant,
leading to many incorrect versions of other planck units.
  See the lower part of Planck's Constant on this website
for a complete explanation.

Updated January 21, 2006
Added more regarding the history of Planck's Constant.

Updated January 20, 2006
The update of December 30, 2006, states that Google
was incorrect in displaying the units for Planck's constant.
My apologies to Google.   Google was not incorrect - just incomplete.
There was a failure to mention which type of kilogram was used.
This is typical of one of the failings of using the metric system in physics.
See the lower part of Planck's Constant on this website
for a complete explanation as to why both
meter2 kilogram/second and kilogram meter second
are both correct units for the accepted version
of Planck's constant and why both should be replaced.

Updated January 9, 2006
Added paragraphs to Photons and Red Shift and Planck's Constant.
This clarification should do a better job of explaining why
quantum electrodynamics (QED) is seriously flawed
and why Planck's constant was given the wrong units.

Updated December 30, 2005
On this date and for some time previously, Google has been
presenting a version of Planck's constant that appears to be
a perfect example of why search engines are not to be trusted
in regard to technical and scholarly information.

Search engines are merely search engines so that one may have
access to places which specialize in what may be correct answers.

The Google version may have been the result of action by a
non-scientific committee since it mixes two different measuring
systems and has units that only vaguely resemble those of the
accepted value of this constant.   In any case, the reader
should beware of such misrepresentations.

The Google version, shown at the beginning of the search results
when one enters "planck constant" or similar words, is
Planck's constant = 6.626068 x 10-34 m2kg/s

Actually, the accepted version of Planck's constant according to
the texts used for well over half a century is:
6.6252 x 10-34 joule second
or
6.757704 x 10-35 meter kilogram second.

For those of you unfamiliar with how units are presented,
meter is not the same as meter2
and
kilogram second is not the same as kilogram/second.

Although the actual numbers may be updated from time to time as new
and more accurate methods are devised, these numbers should remain
approximately the same.   The units should never change except
to correct the error which was recently mentioned on this website.

For more information on Planck's constant
see Planck's Constant on this website.

Updated December 23, 2005
Added three paragraphs to Introduction to Magnetism.

Updated December 16, 2005

Added links to the new addition in Planck's Constant
and in More About the Electron

Updated October 27, 2005
Added Planck's Constant as an extension of
More About the Electron to explain that the units
of Planck's constant were apparently assigned incorrectly
by physicists due to an oversight about time.
Also added some to More About the Electron
and to Photons and Red Shift.
Other parts of this website regarding Planck's constant
were left intact since the math is not seriously affected
by the units currently in use by scientists.

Updated October 21, 2005
Added Myths, Fables, Stories, and Reality

Updated October 13, 2005
Added Chapter Three of Book Four - Light from Behind Light's Illusion.

Behind Light's Illusion
except that the terms needed for the website have been added.
 

Updated August 25, 2005
Frankly, the part of magnetism dealing with two current-carrying,
parallel wires was incorrect.   I apologize to those who may
have been confused.   This was a rather stupid error on my part
because I knew better.   The error has been corrected and in the
same section I have placed a detailed explanation of charge as I
currently believe it to be.   Click on Magnetism below for
the corrected part.   The part on "charge" is farther below
on the same page.

Multi-talented Marcelo Moreira Jr. of Sao Paulo, Brazil,
has just completed a translation of an article on gravity.
Marcelo has also done more work on his website which is one
of the chief sources of nether theory now with more and more
being translated into Portuguese.   Those of us who are
proponents of this theory are very grateful that Marcelo is
with us.

Updated August 19, 2005
Added Inertia to website.

Updated August 12, 2005
This update merely added embellishments to existing items
to make the site more easily navigated by the reader.

Updated August 4, 2005
Added The Origin of Nether Theory

 
Updated July 29,2005
The August 2005 issue of Scientific American contains some
interesting articles.   One article, Is the Universe Out of Tune, describes
how the accepted version of the Big Bang still fails to make sense.   In
the past, the Scientific American editors have been accepting articles
on bandaids proposed by particle physicists in efforts to repair
a broken-down concept.

Scientific American is one of the magazines that has been
notorious for publishing only articles dealing with the most conservative
of mainstream concepts, and has rejected offers to provide articles on new
flute physics or anything remotely resembling an ether.   Needless to say,
when it comes to physics, the SA editors listen to those with PhD's in physics,
those who provide "accepted" information regardless of how ludricrous it is.

In the July 16, 2005, issue of Science News is an article on
Richard Feynman and his diagrams.   Copyright law does not allow me
to show the article, but it mentions that his diagrams revolutionized
calculations in physics, allowing him to share in the 1965 Nobel Prize
in physics.   The physics "Greats" of the time, including Niels Bohr,
Paul Dirac, Enrico Fermi, and J. Robert Oppenheimer, did everything
feasible to discredit Feynman's methods and to prevent others from
using them.   Those who realized the value of his diagrams were
forced to meet secretly.   Sounds normal to me - just like things are
today except for the fact that the internet did not exist then.

For those few who still want to throw out the babies (data from
supposedly outmoded physics) with the bathwater, gravity lensing
still works.   In the July 23, 2005, issue of Science News is an
anecdote called Grand Illusion, which cites another example of
the use of gravity lensing to magnify distant celestial phenomena.
In this case, a distant galaxy is magified 13 times.

Added Nether Unified Theory
Added Lists of Contents of first Six Books of Behind Light's Illusion

 
Updated: July 18, 2005
Added below a message sent from Marcelo Moreira Jr. in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The negative "epithets" and/or "homages" you have received from the
"Old Guard" of science, in my opinion, don't matter anyway because
brainwashed minds will never reason well enough to understand and to
accept Nether Theory in its entirety.   However (as you well know)
"the truth is the daughter of time"... and will be inevitable.

Maybe Thomas Kuhn was right when he argued that orthodoxy
will not tolerate any challenge to its dominance.

I have translated for you this beautiful quote from
a brazilian scientist who I "know".

"The scientist is not a being who lives looking for glory or success
and, avoiding this, fails.   Under this aspect, I see the scientist as a being
who opens or closes doors.   If nothing of my theories justifies itself,
I would like to pass into the history of science as someone who closed
the door of an immense labyrinth that led nowhere.   Psychologically
speaking, this is enough for me.   What I cannot do is ignore the existence
of this labyrinth, only to please the 'modern' physicists who would like me to
hide it under the carpet."

[Alberto Mesquita Filho in Ciencialist, 05/31/2001]

 
Subsequently, the author of the quote translated it into English and
it was relayed to me by Marcelo.   See it below.

"A scientist is not a being that lives just in search of glory, or success,
and to avoid failures.   Under this view, I see a scientist as a being
that opens or shuts doors.   If nothing of my theories comes to be justified,
I would like to pass into the history of science as someone who locked the door
of an immense labyrinth, that doesnít lead to any place.   Psychologically,
this will be enough for me.   The thing that I canít do is ignore the existence
of this labyrinth, just to satisfy the "modern" physicists, that would like me to
hide this under the rug."

[Alberto Mesquita Filho in Ciencialist, 2001/05/31]

and The Music of Quantum States.

Updated: April 27, 2004
Changed parts of site to show that the light half-wave is
actually caused by the electron "rotating" (changing direction)
at the end of each "to and fro" movement of its vibration during
the production of a photon, and that nether theory agrees with
Compton's equation for photon momentum.

Updated: March 17, 2004
Added Electrons and Positrons and More about Electrons.

Updated: March 14, 2004
Added website of Sergey N. Arteha who has an excellent
book on line regarding Einstein's relativity.

Updated: March 10, 2004
Added some words regarding derivations to
Black Holes and to Using the Right Tools.

Updated: March 3, 2004
Added Black Holes, more explanation on The Michelson-Morley Experiment,
and more links to Other Websites.

Updated: March 1, 2004
Added Fitzgerald, Lorentz, Einstein, and Relativity;
The Michelson-Morley Experiment; Lorentz Factor Derivation;
The Pythagorean Theorem; Relativity and Nether Theory;

and modified the home page accordingly. Another question was
added in Questions and Answers. Some changes were made
in Is There a Dynamic Ether? to correct some former impressions
regarding Einstein and relativity.

These additions and changes were made as the result of some research
into Einstein and his work. Much was found in two volumes which include
parts in both German and English. These are called Albert Einstein,
Philosopher-Scientist
, edited by Paul Arthur Schilpp, published by
Harper and Row, 1959 edition, copyrighted in 1949. Einstein's own words
were an eye-opener that made me realize just how much his work was
distorted by others to satisfy their own ends.

The physics texts are careful to leave out those things that are not in
accord with the wishes of their authors or those who wrote the earlier
texts, and other facts are distorted. I was extremely irritated by what
authors writing what is found in the most reputable enclopediae have done
to obfuscate and complicate what would otherwise be straightforward and
simple. It would appear that they do not want us to discover some truths.

The original words of Michelson and Morley regarding their 1887
experiment are found in the new section of this website. It is an
excerpt from their paper which was published in the Philosophical
Magazine
, Series 5, December, 1887. The clarity found in the
original work is a refreshing change compared to he muddle in many
of the modern descriptions - and most modern texts exclude the bulk
of the experiment's details.

Updated: February 25, 2005
Added more questions/accusations to the
part called Answers to Questions.

Updated: February 24, 2004
Revised home page. Created separate update log.
Created separate confirmation file.

Updated: February 23, 2004
Added part called "Using the Right Tools"
(look below algebra review) and "Answers to Questions".

Updated: February 10, 2004
More paragraphs were added to the introduction
regarding wrong paths and why they are taken.
A short algebra review was added to the home page.

Updated: January 29, 2004
Several paragraphs were added to the home page
to better introduce the website.

Updated: January 12, 2004
More explanation regarding flux and flux lines
has been added to "Magnetism" to counter the
tendency of people to look at more advanced parts
of this site before understanding the fundamentals.

Updated: September 15, 2003
Part of vortices updated to show website of
Marcus Coleman and "Whirlpools" by Daniel Chiu.

Updated: August 17, 2003
Minor corrections due to typographical errors,
and removal or alteration of
certain non-contributing portions.

Sequel to the update below: The attempt was shelved again
due to public pressure. It will probably re-surface in the
the future when the public is looking elsewhere.

Updated: July 17, 2003
Added Western Shoshone Defense Project
to "Other Websites".
Mining Interests are pressuring Congress to steal
more Shoshones land. You can help.

Updated: April 10, 2003
Changed date when Nether Theory was first discovered
to May of 1965. The discovery came gradually between
May 2 and May 5 according to old records which had
not been previously consulted.

Updated: March 15, 2003
"Why Science is Failing" was added.

Updated: March 9, 2003
"Critical Thinking" was added.

Updated: February 28, 2003
"Gravity" was added because a separate section
for it seemed appropriate as well as a slightly
clearer explanation on some points.

Updated: February 22, 2003
"Magnetism" was added due to a need shown by
Jan Olof Jonson of Sweden who has published
a paper showing how units of electrical measurement
can be best used to measure magnetic properties.
